Boreal Natural Tatamis Features

Boreal Bed-Size Tatamis are made entirely of rice straw without any synthetic filling in the center. No solvant or toxic additives are used in the process. Rice is cultivated for food and the rice straw is then woven into the mats.

  • Traditional black borders.
  • The bottom is protected by a canvas that acts as a barrier against humidity.
  • The natural color of the tatami mat is greenish and take a wheat color over time with exposure to natural light.
  • Natural and bio degradable.
  • Tatamis are thick and heavy (62 lb each) and won’t move when used.

Tatamis Warranty and Cleaning

The tatamis will last many years if used properly. The natural color of the tatami mat is greenish and take a wheat color over time with exposure to natural light.

You can occasionally dust or vacuum the tatamis and clean it with a humid cloth.  Avoid any excess water that could cause molding if not dried properly.

Boreal bed-size tatamis come with a 2-years warranty against all manufacturing defects. Damage caused by wear, humidity or inapropriate usage is not covered by warranty.


Odor and Parasite Prevention

The tatamis have a strong odor that comes from the rice straw itself. While this partially wears gradually, it is still to consider if you are sensible to odors.  A good ventilation will help the smell to dissipate faster.

The rice straw is dried for months after the harvest, then put in a special oven to eliminate all parasites. The final product will then have to pass all regulations for export by Republic of China Customs and Quarantine to garantee the tatamis are to the highest hygiene standards.

Once they arrive in Canada, the tatamis are stored in a dry and ventilated warehouse to help dissipate the odor.

The tatamis are exempt of any parasites, thus bed bugs or any other parasite contamination is not covered by warranty.
